tesUpload 1.1

tesUpload allows asynchronous file uploads with an AJAX progress bar in PHP.
tesUpload project allows asynchronous file uploads with an AJAX progress bar in PHP.

One of the few things that PHP lacks that other web environments have, is the ability to report the progress of a file upload.

This means that file uploads, especially uploads of larger files, can be extremely frustrating for end users when they don't know if the upload is progressing or if it has stalled or if it has even started.

tesUpload solves this problem by using a perl script that handles the progress reporting. Don't worry if you are a hardcore PHP programmer, you won't have to touch the perl code at all. Just put the cgi-script in your cgi-bin folder and forget about it.

For a more in-depth explanation of how this works, see my original blog post on the subject.


tesUpload requires a webserver running PHP and Perl CGI-scripts (it's probably easier to find web hosts that do than ones that don't). It also requires the Prototype javascript library (included in tesUpload).

What's New in This Release:

No longer requires prototype
Quicker uploads
Now does both asynchronous as well as normal uploads
